Lyrics

Joannie

Written By: Martin Cook

Go, go on Joannie
You’d hate to miss the plane
Pack up your things and fly away
And don’t come back again
Before you’re just a memory
Let me tell you what I feel
The good life might be within your reach
But you’ll never break the seal

Go, go on Joannie
We’ve seen it all before
Though you’ve had no reasons to celebrate
You always knew the score
You keep shaking the bottle that you’re drinking from
Never letting it settle and clear
You never believe you’re where you belong
There was always a place for you here

You’re a ‘Fly-by-Night’
A ‘Moonlight-special’
You never got it right
That nowhere’s as precious as home.

Go, go on Joannie
You’ll only miss the rain
Pack up your things and set yourself free
And leave me here again
So all you need’s a change of scene
Well I’m glad you feel so sure
But bear in mind what you do to me
Every time you close the door

You’re a ‘Fly-by-Night’
A ‘Moonlight-special’
You never got it right
That nowhere’s as precious as home.
Nowhere’s as precious as home.
